It’s probably safe to say that South Carolina Senate Dem primary winner Alvin Greene will not be hearing from anonymous senior administration officials out to offer him a cushy job in exchange for him dropping out of the race. Instead, I imagine the White House (and many others) are hoping the press will do their dirty work and solve the strange mystery of how Greene — a totally unfunded, unknown — won the SC primary last week.
When asked this morning on Meet the Press whether he thought Greene was a “legitimate candidate” David Axelrod did not pull many punches.
It’s doesn’t appear so to me. It’s a mysterious deal, he didn’t campaign, the whole thing is odd, and I don’t really know how to explain it. I don’t think anyone else does either….I think the Democrats of South Carolina deserve a strong, credible candidate, and I guess he would argue he won 60% of the primary so that would be him. How he won the primary is a big mystery though, and until you resolve that I don’t think he can claim to be a strong, credible candidate.
They just don't know what to do with this guy, be extremely funny if he did turn out to be a plant, like Democrats don't have enough to worry about.
